Steady Rests$ 120.00 – $ 760.00
Bowl and Vessel Steady Rests
Steady rests are used to support large diameter bowls and hollow vessels when working on the interior. They are also used to support long spindles. Long hollow forms especially need the support of a quality steady rest.
We manufacture steady rests to fit five sizes of lathes: 14", 16", 20", 24" and 25". 20-25" steady rests are constructed from a rigid tubular steel ring. 14 & 16" steady rests are made from laser cut steel. All the wheels are heavy duty.
Upon request, we will orient the three arm 20-25" steady rests for better laser access. We can also equip these steady rests with four evenly spaced arms. Fourteen & 16" steady rests are oriented for laser, and available in three arm configuration only.
Steady rests are made to order. You need to specify which lathe you have when ordering so that we can install the correct tenon to fit your ways. Click here for Robust Steady Rest Tips.
For Most 12″ Lathes with 1” Diameter Post$ 49.00 – $ 89.00Please Note: Certain lathes are advertised as 12" lathes, when in fact they are 12.5" lathes. You'll want to select your toolrests from the 12.5-14" selection page. Also, the Jet 1236 uses the rests on that page as well, as the banjo on the 1236 is quite short.View productsDetails
Tool Handles – Robust Collet Handle System$ 69.00 – $ 159.00Whether you’re changing gouges or simply taking the handle off to make sharpening easier, the Robust Collet System makes it a quick job. Just a twist of the wrist. Robust designed the system around the popular ER series collets and each system comes equipped with four common sizes. You can buy the system with or without handles: The handles are hard maple with a polyurethane finish. The overall length for the ER32 handle is 20.5″ and the ER25 is 16″. If you want to make your own handle, buy the kit. The kit has all the metal pieces, including the collets, as well as basic instructions. Collets in the ER 25 set: 1/4, 3/8, ½ & 5/8” Collets in the ER 32 set: 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 & 3/4" All of the ER series collets have an expansion range of a little more than 1/32" To accommodate gouges that are slightly oversize, the collets we provide are actually 1/32" larger than nominal. For instance, a 1/2" collet is actually 17/32". In regards to tools with square shanks, ER collets have eight segments. You'd want the corners of the square shank to register in them. If the four collets we provide don't work, you should be able to find one online that will at nominal cost.
